Eastside Culture Crawl Celebrates Vancouver's Vibrant Arts District

Various Eastside Locations14 Nov '19 to 17 Nov '19 @ 11:00 AM - 10:00 PM
  • Eastside Culture Crawl Celebrates Vancouver's Vibrant Arts District

More than 500 visual artists will open their art studios, collaborative work spaces, garages, and homes — to engage with the public, showcase their remarkable work, and encourage fellowship — during the 23rd annual Eastside Culture Crawl, taking place across Vancouver's Eastside community from November 14 to 17, 2019. Encompassing the region bounded by Columbia Street, 1st Avenue, Victoria Drive, and the Waterfront, the Eastside Arts District is home to the highest concentration of visual artists, designers, and craft makers in Canada. The Crawl eagerly welcomes arts patrons and collectors, community builders, and inquisitive tourists to immerse themselves in this enriching community of artists through on-site visits, and interactive installations. This year, the beloved arts festival is excited to offer an expanded lineup of events with the addition of the Displacement Exhibition and a series of free artist talks hosted at various studios throughout Vancouver's Eastside.

This season, the Crawl is encouraging a deeper connection with artists through a brand-new curated series of free artist talks and conversations taking place at various studios in advance of the Crawl, from November 4 to 9, 2019. Hosted by 14 Crawl participants in their own studios, these intimate and entertaining talks will further illuminate each host's artistic vision and process within a studio setting, deepening the connection between artist and admirer.

Members of the public are invited to supplement their Eastside Culture Crawl experience through a number of feature presentations, workshops, demonstrations, and exhibitions, including:
